Maque choux (pronounced “mock shoe”) is a classic Cajun dish of stewed corn and vegetables. This fresh and colorful version has bacon and cream, plus okra that is fried until crispy to combat any slime issues. So slap on a cheesy Cajun accent and serve up this dish alongside some Chile-Roasted Shrimp or Wild Rice Jambalaya.
What to buy: Frozen corn can be substituted for fresh; just thaw before using.
